Millennial Blog Posts For Twenty Somethings Feeling Lost

Millennial Blog Posts For Twenty Somethings Feeling Lost by rachel ritlop of the confused millennial

If you caught this post on “2017 Plans” last month, then you know I stopped doing monthly “goal” posts just about as quickly as I started. The perfectionist in me came out in full force trying to reach the goals I had made oh so public. While I do think it's important to set goals, and my blog is definitely a nice revenue stream for me, watching it grow and flying by the seat of my pants a little has been what keeps it fun!

Here is a quick look back on January 2017 from a personal standpoint:

– This month took a serious emotional toll on me. Between politics and people, it feels like the month of ego's run rampant and negativity everywhere I turn. This month consisted of a lot of beach time, binge watching, Mexican food, pizza, and tea —> basically my self-care mega-load.

– This year my word is “organized” — Oprah said she used to have a guiding word each year, but she found that whatever she themed her year as she got a bunch of stuff that tested the ish out of it… Which basically feels like what's happening in my life. Due to the emotional rollercoaster, my organizational skills have gotten all flipped upside down. If you are struggling and feel like you keep hitting set back after set back, just know you are not alone.

Which leads me to something new I am trying at the start of each month: a quick themed round-up of past posts on TCM!

This months post are to help you go from feeling totally lost and overwhelmed to just simply confused — haha see what I did there? Confused millennial and all that jazz ?.

  1. January was such a headache for me too… especially re: the political situation currently happening. good to know we have similar coping methods re: pizza šŸ˜‰ organised is a great “theme” to have! x

    1. Girl same!! That’s what I was primarily referencing with why January was so dang frustrating! lol BTW I think you would like the new netflix show, santa clarita diet, the humor I think would speak to you haha

  2. Beaching, binging, Mexican food and pizza?? Hey, girl there’s nothing wrong with that! Sounds like we should be friends, haha.

    Xo /

    1. oh they are a game changer! The only complaint i have with them is you can’t dim them (they start flickering)! I was so surprised by how popular the cleaning hacks post was! I thought it would do well, but it did great!

  3. I think a lot of people are feeling the same way, just overwhelmed and lost. I know I sure have been! This is a great collection of inspiring posts. Way to go girl šŸ™‚

  4. Haha girl, that’s the EXACT reason I never do monthly goals lists on my blog!!! The pressure I put on myself to get everything done outweighs any satisfaction and pride I feel in getting ANYTHING done if I don’t complete the list šŸ™

  5. I agree with you completely on not making your goals public…I tried it once and I felt so overwhelmed and always felt the pressure to succeed on the goals I made because I knew my followers were counting on me. I make personal goals and lists that I would LOVE for them to happen but no more publicizing them!


    1. Omg thank you! You are the only other person to say they felt like that too! I have daily lists and everything, but honestly, if I don’t reach them, it’s not a big deal — plus I couldn’t share on the blog HOW I planned on reaching them since I am a blog coach/consultant and I can’t give alllll the secrets away for free haha

  6. By now, most people have let the ‘restart’ part of January fly by šŸ˜› and I always keep my goals to myself ha! Then no one will know.

  7. I totally agree on seeing so much negativity this month! I just result to reading to get away from it šŸ™‚

  8. My boyfriend could really use these right now. He’s feeling really lost in his path, and I think it’s extra hard for him because I seem to know what I want to be mine.

    1. Yeah, I know what thats like… Hope he finds some clarity soon! I find that a lot of men are really struggling with finding their path recently… I know my husband feels like he is. It’s tough
